Trump described the deal as "horrible" and "one-sided" as he announced U.S. withdrawal on Tuesday, which could lead to penalties for European businesses that have begun trading with Iran since it was signed in 2013. No regime loyalists would dare say it, especially to an American reporter, but Iranians are furious with their own government's failure to deliver basics like electricity, water and decent wages.

However, there is no guarantee that the current diplomatic line-up would remain the same. Its foreign policy hinges on the principle of obtaining such privileges and benefits.

"It's a UN Security Council Resolution and it belongs to the entire world".

"The decision to unilaterally pull out of this agreement carries risk". The US showed that it recognizes global legal norms only when they meet its interests.

"The holy system of the Islamic Republic will step up its missile capabilities day by day so that Israel, this occupying regime, will become sleepless and the nightmare will constantly haunt it that if it does anything foolish, we will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground", he said, according to state television.

"The President of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran has been tasked with taking all necessary steps in preparation for Iran to pursue industrial-scale enrichment without any restrictions, using the results of the latest research and development of Iran's fearless nuclear scientists", the statement said.

Iran said it had asked Europe's Airbus to announce whether it would go ahead with a plane deal with Tehran following the us pullout.

"Waivers seem a sensible course of action", the third source said, referring to potential exemptions from the latest US sanctions.

"I think the Europeans will see that's in their interest ultimately to go along with this", he said.

Racing were dealt a blow just before kick-off when All Blacks legend Dan Carter withdrew from the bench with a hamstring injury. The 6-6 scoreline became 9-9 and 12-12 as Iribaren landed four of his five penalty attempts and Sexton finished with three.

"The extent to which we can keep this deal something we need to discuss with Iran", said Merkel, who earlier spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the issue.

One is that Europeans will follow Washington's lead.

Germany and France, in particular, have established significant trade links with Iran.

Iran's exports are expected to decrease, as are foreign investments in the country.

TRUMP, referring to allies: "We are unified in our understanding of the threat, and in our conviction that Iran must never acquire a nuclear weapon".

"The 180 days Trump is talking about is a breather of sorts for himself, not for Iran or those who support JCPOA".

But while slogans of "Death to America" were few, many Iranians are sincerely angry over Trump's decision and are siding with the hard-liners, who have always been suspicious of the West. "Even Canada and Australia are against".

Trump's move has sparked a range of reactions, with some countries welcoming it and others condemning it. Without global support, the sanctions will simply not be working.

"There is a realisation among all European states what we can not keep going in the direction we are headed today whereby we submit to American decisions", Le Maire told reporters in the French capital, Paris. "Indeed, I would argue that they thought they could act with impunity", he said. "When Modi took office, the price for the Indian crude basket was $108.05 per barrel; just before the Iran deal, it was $57.19 per barrel; and by the end of 2015, it was $33.36 per barrel".
